….An Affair of Love that is! Yes, in a post of shameless self-promotion and giddy excitement I am pleased to announce that yesterday I took delivery of my first published anthology, ‘The Affair of Love’. A beautiful, pocket-sized A6 anthology of 15 poems all written by little ol’ me! The poems stem from a verse [click here to read more]
Yes, today I feel like I am joining in with all the Christmas mania. All those voucher codes, black Fridays, discounts galore… for today I am offering you three posts for the price of one!
My news is that I am calling a halt/break to our Something for the Weekend linky. Basically, since we moved it from Monday (and also because I am now working so much) I simply don’t have time to maintain it properly. Not just for me, but for all the people who link up. Tom and I really appreciate people who take the time to link up, join in and be part of our linky. However, we have noticed that we are slipping as are the number of people linking up so thought it would be best to give it a break until the new year and then perhaps bring it back… Or maybe not. We’ll see. In any case, HUGE thanks to all of you who have ever linked up to the Monday Club or Something for the Weekend or, indeed, Wednesday Witter. Remember that?
Linky culls seem to be on the agenda today. Suzanne over at ‘Three Children and It‘ is also stopping her ‘Oldies but Goodies’ linky. I have linked up with her today as well with my most statistically popular post ever which is on the glorious subject of poo. Mary Berry’s scarf came in a close second. I am not sure what that says about my blogging! Anyway, do hop over and give her her last hurrah as well.
My third post to offer you today apart from this one and poo is courtesy of Stephanie over at ‘Beautiful Misbehaviour’. Fool that she is, she asked to interview me about my poetry book and today has posted the interview on her blog. So if you would like to see what I have to say about writing, feminism and pink Lego then click here.
So, there you are. Enough reading for at least two cups of tea and a caramel chocolate digestive that I *might* be rather partial to at the moment. For my part, I am off to stock up on Benylin, Calpol, paracetamol, Vicks and, oh, what’s that other thing I need…..? Ah, yes. Wine. Nothing like a slurp of Chardonnay to wash down the penicillin. We are officially the House of Lurgy. And no prizes for guessing who is doing all the TLC….despite feeling like I’ve been repeatedly smacked round the head with my son’s rubber sword. There’s still people to tend to, houses to tidy, food to buy, food to prepare, food to clear up….you get the picture. Not that I’m bitter. *coughs* *coughs again* *and again*
Why so many coughs? Oh, yes, because I’M ILL TOO!
On that note…xx
